The starting point of the piece is to inverse the traditional way of working with narrative: instead of having a story or series of stories to then put into context, the idea is to create a place, or describe a space, that will slowly become the framework to navigate into a series of abstract micro-narratives that occur in this setting. In this case it is a cocktail lounge / retirement home / beach club in Miami where old artists go to spend the last days of their lives, when they no longer produce art with the need to show it or be critical with their surroundings.
